Sale Purchases

Sale time, hurrah!  I wouldn’t say I’m a total hardcore sale shopper, (otherwise known as lunatics), I don’t camp outside Selfridges the night before nor do I rise at 4am to get to a Next sale (that shit cray!).  Throughout the year I do get gifted an awful lots of products and obviously I buy my fair share too, so more often than not, the bits that have gone into sale, I already have, booooo!  That said there are some things that simply must be bought when you see them in the sale.  Some people might not agree, but over the years there have been very few sale-purchase-disasters (bar the metallic space-style jumpsuit of 09′, let us forget!).  So here’s a few snippets of my Sale purchases thus far, stores are now starting their further markdowns and the one to watch is Zara!  As I used to work for them I know how they operate their sales.  They have so much stock that by the time the 3rd of 4th markdowns come into play, there’s still stock that’s not even been out on the shop floor yet, so that’s the stuff you’ll get at truly bargainous prices!
Check out all my purchases below and also some of my top tips for shopping the sales 🙂

My top tips for shopping the sales

1. Think ahead, is there anything that will cross over for next season or even next AW?  Even if it perhaps needs some customising?
2. Shop the menswear section!  They always have XXXL and XS sizes left so ladies get in there for those XS’s! I’m a huge fan of wearing menswear and they have some awesome pieces.  I buy blazers from Zara and ASOS is an XS and they fir perfectly!
3.  Re-check and check again!  Stores update their sale stock online regularly. Returns get processed daily and items that were sold out often become available again, new lines will be added and even re-stocking from stores that aren’t selling certain pieces.
4.  Wrong size? Find a good, cheap tailor and get it altered!  If there’s a sale bargain that is just too good to miss, but it’s not in the right size, buy it and take it to a good tailor and get it altered to fit you.  Many tailoring services can be really reasonable so even if it costs a tenner to adjust you’ve still probably made a good saving.
5.  Check the returns policy!!! There are plenty of stores like Reiss and Kurt Geiger that won’t offer refunds on sale items so this info will come in handy if you’re uncertain about an item.

P.S. I still have a few more sale purchases to come in the post so I’ll post those and any more that I accumulate when they arrive
